See the iconic attractions of Lake McKenzie, 75 Mile Beach and the Maheno shipwreck PLUS, exclusive to multi-day tours, bathe in the Champagne Pools and hike across an ancient sand blow into the emerald green oasis of Lake Wabby.
This tour represents the BEST VALUE experience on K'gari!
You’ll explore the world’s largest sand island from the comfort of a custom-built 4WD coach, as you learn about the ecology, wildlife, and history of this special place.
✔ Lake McKenzie (Boorangoora) - K'gari's most iconic, picture-perfect swimming spot! Immerse yourself in the crystal-clear blue fresh water and relax on the sandy white beaches.
✔ Central Station - A former logging station that housed schools and shops for the bustling timber industry is now a tourist stop. Stroll along the Wanggoolba Creek boardwalk to discover the ancient King Ferns, towering Flooded Gums and Pine Trees.
✔ 75 Mile Beach - As you travel along this golden beach highway, you may spot dingoes, birds of prey flying above, or humpback whales migrating down the coast (between July - October).
✔ Eli Creek - Float gently down this tranquil, tree-lined creek with four million litres of fresh water flowing into the Pacific Ocean every hour.
✔ Maheno Shipwreck - Marvel at the rustic wreck of the Maheno, which washed ashore during an out-of-season cyclone in 1935. It's one of K'gari's most recognisable sites.
✔ The Pinnacles Coloured Sands – Learn about these radiant, cliff-like sand formations and the Indigenous Dreamtime stories that surround them. Get up close and experience the 72 shades of rare red, orange and yellow sands.
Exclusive to the two-day tour itinerary:
✔ Indian Head – Cruise past the most easterly point of the island, which is home to marine life such as turtles and rays, often spotted in the waters around the base of this rocky headland.
✔ Champagne Pools – Take a dip in this amazing natural jacuzzi, as waves crash over the volcanic rock into beautiful bubbling pools.
✔ Lake Wabby - Trek across the desert-like Hammerstone Sandblow and be rewarded with a panorama of ocean, lake and forest surrounds, before plunging into this emerald green freshwater oasis. (Please note: this is a 4km return walk through bushland and across soft sands - a moderate fitness level is required. The Lake Wabby walk is an optional activity).
Plus - Take your adventure to new heights, with an optional scenic flight with Air Fraser and witness the world's largest sand island from above. It's the perfect add-on to your tour! Subject to weather and availability. (Additional cost applies)
